The May TBR that could have been.

Hello and welcome back to my blog. Today I’m doing my May TBR … kind of.

You see I have more or less seven weeks till the end of school and my graduation from mandatory education which roughly translates to seven weeks for me to get my grades up so that I do actually graduate and get my title and rub it in my brothers face and make my parents proud. Etcetera.

(Also family friends we haven’t seen in 10 years and grandparents we haven’t seen in 3 years both decided to come out to stay with us this month???)

So I imagine the next two months are going to be pretty busy and my time for reading is going to be limited. And so I’m going to be talking about all the books I WISH I could be reading in May when in actual fact I’ll be slaving over Math/History/Latin/Economy homework and wishing I was dead 🙂

  • Again but better by Christine Riccio- Yes this was on last months TBR, no I didn’t manage to get to it. I was hoping I’d be able to get to this before it’s publication cause I got an ARC but … well that plan went down the toilet fast.
  • What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard- May is mental health awareness month and this book focuses on a character with an eating disorder. I’ve never read a book focusing on such topic before but I really want to start reading more tough subject books that talk about eating disorders and other mental health issues so I really hope to squeeze this in this month.
  • Heartstopper by Alice Oseman- Another from last month. I did really bad with last months TBR. No seriously I NEED to read this this month and I think I’ll be able to. It’s a nice little graphic novel so it shouldn’t take me too long and hopefully it’ll be good to take stress away.
  • Amy and Rogers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson- This is up for free right now on Riveted.com and I still haven’t read a full Morgan Matson book. If I do get to this it’ll probably be down to late night reading on my phone cause I can’t/refuse to sleep.
  • Leo Loves Aries by Anyta Sunday- I just really want to get this out from my ARC shelf cause it’s making me feel guilty every time I look at it. All I remember about this is that it has LGBT+ themes and there’s possibly a guy called Leo? I’m going in not knowing much but I do know it has a pretty good rating on Goodreads.

Oh, also I’d be very happy if I could finish reading After by Anna Todd but considering I picked it up nearly two weeks ago and I’m only 100 pages in it seems unlikely. Should I give up on it and beg my best friend for forgiveness or should I march on?

black-and-white-flowers-tumblr-transparent-12I just realised all of the books mentioned are contemporaries. There’s not a single whiff of magic or paranormal which means one thing and one thing only … I’m also going to be reading a bunch of fanfic this month.

Thanks for reading, I really hope I can at least fit in a couple books this month.
